What is Wholesale & Distribution ERP Software?
ERP is a term which stands for Enterprise Resource Planning and is the name given to software that essentially connects all areas of your business into one resource. ERPs, like Sage 200, are hugely beneficial for a wide range of industries as they allow you to manage all key business areas, including core financial tasks, stock control, sales orders, suppliers, customers and more, in one location. Plus, the Wholesale Distribution industry can benefit from modules that provide industry-specific features and benefits.
By connecting all parts of your business together, you can automate necessary but tedious processes and allow your staff to get on with the tasks that really matter. Think of ERP as a way to streamline your entire business, increasing productivity and efficiency across the board and resulting in business growth and increased profits.
We know that managing a wholesale company or a distribution business comes with enormous challenges, including stock management, forecasting trends and sales, fulfilling orders, maintaining supply chains, and handling customer relations, to name but a few. With Sage 200, these processes can be automated and streamlined, allowing your enterprise to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Sage 200 Wholesale & Distribution Capabilities
After working as a Sage Business Partner for many years, providing Sage solutions to small and large businesses, we have a thorough understanding of the features available and the ways they can directly help wholesale and distribution business. As well as its core features, Sage 200 has a wide range of add-ons and optional modules designed to give you even more control with industry-specific functionality.
Key Wholesale Distribution Features of Sage 200
Sage 200 allows you to consolidate all your existing systems into one centralised location, thereby solving the issue of unorganised offices and overly complicated processes to make life easier for staff across all departments.
Businesses work best when all aspects can work together; for example, your sales team can quickly and easily access the full inventory management system and identify whether or not a product is in stock. This information can then be passed on to the customers along with their estimated delivery time, helping to secure the sale.
Thanks to its cloud capabilities, real-time, centralised data can be utilised by all staff members whenever and wherever. With a recent increase in hybrid and remote working, this ensures all members of staff are always up to date, promotes collaboration across teams, and means you’ll never miss an opportunity.
Manage your business from end to end with Sage 200 and ensure all areas of your company are running as efficiently as possible so you can exceed customer expectations and respond to evolutions in the ever-changing wholesale and distribution industries.
With Sage 200, you can automate those essential but monotonous tasks, freeing up time for your staff to focus on what really matters, minimising issues caused by human error, and boosting productivity and efficiency.
Track your stock levels and inventory in real-time with the Stock Control module designed to alleviate the stresses and errors that occur with manual stock-taking and inventory management. Managing high volumes of products can be challenging, but with Sage 200, you can organise stock items by product type and a wide range of attributes personalised to your products. Accurately tracking your stock items also increases efficiency in the warehouse and minimises despatch errors.
Sage 200 provides an oversight of your supply chains, resources and processes in real-time, allowing you to identify issues and disruptions as they occur so you can rectify them before they escalate to a larger problem. According to recent data, 68% of supply chain executives in wholesale industries say they’re constantly spending their time responding to high-impact disruptions. Increased supply data also allows you to be more transparent with customers who are increasingly demanding to know where their products are coming from.
Manage your customer relations with ease by integrating your CRM and keep customers up to date with real-time updates. Secure data storage also means you can use customer information for marketing and re-targeting campaigns and ensure you meet GDPR obligations.
These are just some of the core features available with Sage 200 straight out of the box – but don’t forget it’s completely customisable!

Signs You Need Sage 200
We understand that investing in a wholesale ERP system is a large investment for your company. You may be wondering if it’s all worth it: “we’ve always done it this way, so why should we change now?” is a common question we receive here at Kinspeed. Unfortunately, many wholesale companies don’t realise they need help until it’s too late, and you’re left in a world of trouble, receiving orders you just can’t fulfil.
Common Reasons Wholesale Companies Implement Sage 200:
If you can relate to any of the reasons listed above, then Sage 200 would be hugely beneficial for your wholesale distribution company. For more information, please call 01246 437000 today, and we’ll get you booked in for a free consultation with no obligations.
Upgrading Your Existing Wholesale ERP System
If you can relate to the bullet points listed above and you’ve outgrown your current business management software, it’s time to upgrade to a solution that aligns more directly with your requirements.
Here at Kinspeed, we see lots of companies who are experiencing growth and developments, but their existing processes and ERP software just can’t keep up. Unfortunately, unlike Sage 200, most ERP systems on the market are not built with scalability and the future in mind.
In their early days, some companies will opt for an ERP system suited to small businesses, like Sage 50. However, as they gain success and traction, they soon find that their existing ERP just can’t cope with the number of orders coming in, a nice problem to have! Take BooHoo, for example; they began with Sage 50, a perfectly good ERP system for small businesses, but as they expanded their locations and started receiving an influx of orders, Sage 50 could no longer keep up. So, using our expertise as one of the longest-running Sage Partners in the UK, we helped BooHoo to upgrade from Sage 50 to Sage 200, which they’re still happily using to this day.
If you’re looking at upgrading your existing Wholesale ERP System, then we’re here to help! Contact us today, and we’ll discuss your requirements to find the best solution for you.
